RICHMOND B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Richmond-Queensborough, Michael Wolfe. Wolfe is a public school science teacher at McNair Secondary in Richmond and currently serves as a board member for the Richmond Health Advisory Committee, Richmond Nature Park Society and the Garden City Conservation Society.
“In this election, I am running to challenge the status quo that is contributing to the declining livability of our region,” said Wolfe. “Science-based community decisionmaking (and MLA voting) must take precedence over the interests of corporations and unions. Only the B.C. Greens are walking the talk when we speak about ending unethical fundraising and lobbying practices. The Richmond-Queensborough area is where I've spent most of my 35 years and I care about the future of this region. Food comes from farmland and my dedication to enhance what remains on our island is without a doubt for our shared food security.”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Wolfe’s nomination from Victoria.
“I am delighted to welcome Michael as the B.C. Green Party candidate in Richmond-Queensborough,” said Weaver. “He is an incredibly passionate educator, inspiring young minds to take a scientific approach to the environment. His track record as an advocate for his community in Richmond and experience developing school curricula is commendable and I would be thrilled to see him in the B.C. Legislature.”
